Why Blacks And Native Americans Feel The American Flag Is Offensive

Francis Scott Key was a slave-owning racist lawyer from an old Maryland plantation family whose riches derived from the bounty of the slave industry. Key once stated that Africans in America were “a distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the greatest evil that afflicts a community.” It should be noted that Key died defending his belief that the institution of slavery should remain legal forever. Therefore, the National Anthem should not be acknowledged in any public American setting.

AFRICANGLOBE - All of the fake, so-called patriots and National Anthem lovers don’t know a damn thing about the lyrics that Francis Scott Key wrote in the year 1814 or what the song was initially about. “The Star-Spangled Banner”, originally known as “Defense of Fort M’Henry”, was written during the War of 1812 where Key witnessed attacks on the City of Baltimore and wrote the words based on his experienced that night. What is called the National Anthem today is nothing like what Key wrote back then and, in many people’s minds, the song is nothing that merited the love and appreciation by Black people in America that lived back in those days.
